Knight Communications

Logos and Branding

If you need a photo of our founders or an officer for publication, please contact Robertson Adams via Logo information is below.

While our official name is the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, all logos refer to the foundation simply as “Knight Foundation.” (Please refer to the Editorial Style section for proper use of the foundation's name in text.)  The logo consists of an insignia (KF) and wordmark (Knight Foundation).
